Create Creature's icon

"Makes a creature and five specimens of it in your cargo hold."

This tool allows the player to create a creature and places 5 of them into the cargo hold for populating planets.

The Create Creature tool being used.

It opens up a unique version of the Creature editor; rather than the background being a lush forest like it usually is, this time it takes place in a high-tech genetic engineering laboratory. Like in the Creature Stage editor, the player can only use parts that they have already "collected" by scanning or abducting creatures that have them.

The created creature will be placed in your Sporepedia, the created creatures are easy to differentiate from creatures created with the normal editor. They have a light source coming from under the creature, instead of above them, in the thumbnail.


This tool uses purchased ammunition.

This requires the Traveler 4 or the Cleaner 5 badge.

  • The backdrop to the editor is identical to that of the Captain editor from Spore Galactic Adventures.
  • The Test Drive mode does not exist when using Create Creature.
